In 1969, the Cuyahoga River burst into flames. It had been so saturated with industrial waste, that sparks from a passing train lit up the river. The dramatic photos of a flowing river on fire were published by Time magazine, fueling a public outcry for change. Those images are credited with sparking the environmental revolution and leading to the Clean Water Act.
